Lewes, DE – The Sussex County Committee of Safe Kids Delaware has just scheduled its 2015 Safe Kids Day for Saturday June 20th, and is looking for vendors to participate. Safe Kids Day will be held from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Lowe’s on Rt. 1 and Plantation Rd. in Lewes.
This annual event, which will be held rain or shine, brings safety and health professionals together to ensure the community has a great start to the summer season. Safe Kids is looking for vendors who can provide information or interactive displays on topics relevant to child safety and injury prevention. There is no charge to vendors or participants.
Past displays have included: summer/water safety, bike safety, medication safety, fire safety, heart/AED awareness, healthy eating, and youth crisis services. Additionally, displays by local fire, police, LifeNet and the Delaware State Police Aviation unit have been very popular. Food vendors are also encouraged to participate. In 2014 there were more than 20 vendors at the event.
Vendors who are interested in joining us for this year’s event, please contact the Chairperson for the Sussex County Committee of Safe Kids Delaware, Cheryl Littlefield of Beebe Healthcare, at 302-6453100 ext. 5192 or via email at CLittlefield@beebehealthcare.org
